Kathmandu,7 Feb 2015: Former Chairperson of the Council of Ministers Khilraj Regmi has advised the political parties to internalize the sentiments of the people who don’t want to listen to the meaningless debates in the name of constitution writing process.
Addressing the sixth general assembly of Ridi-Ramdi Palpali Society here Saturday Regmi also said that the delay in constitution writing on the stipulated timeframe has distressed him.
Regmi said the people were not concerned towards the reasons and logics behind the abortive attempts on part of the political stakeholders to deliver a timely constitution.
“The people want constitution, they are not eager to listen to the logics and definitions behind how the failure to draft the constitution came about, and they don’t hold such patience either, which has been my understanding,” Regmi said.
He said a competent politician would be able to implement his promises of change and progress in deed and added that the people were closely scrutinizing the activities of the leaders and parties whom they had voted for in the elections.
He urged the parties to understand that the people, who were starting to question if the parties would spend decades in petty wrangling by sidestepping the task of institutionalizing democracy with a timely promulgation of the new constitution, and by forget the unity they had welded together during the uprising for political transformation.
The Society has been providing scholarships to students of secondary schools and carrying out various social activities.
